Does My Moving Truck Need A Parking Permit?
For Moving Trucks, Trailers and Storage Containers
You’ve thought of everything from your hairdryer to the kitchen sink as you have planned your upcoming move. You know when to pick up the moving truck and you've hired movers to load it, but have you thought about whether or not your new city requires a temporary parking permit for your moving truck, container or trailer?
As it pertains to moving, some cities, especially the larger ones, will require that you obtain a special parking permit for your moving vehicle. There are also some cities that don't require such a permit, but offer one as a convenience. For example, if you're planning to unload a moving pod in downtown Boston it makes sense to obtain a permit that reserves an unloading zone for your moving container.
Many large cities require them, and some small cities do too. We’ve compiled a list of top cities that we know need permits, and we’d like to share that list with you! Of course, this information will change over time; so definitely check with the city directly to make sure you’ve taken care of everything.
Be sure to apply for your city’s permit well in advance and tell them all the specifics about your move. For example, if you’ll be using a metered location, the city will likely charge more to reserve those spaces. Then, be sure to ask about “No Parking” signs and the legal placement of those signs.
While we did our best to add well-known cities to benefit many people, this list does not include all possible cities out there. You’ll find our roundup of cities that require moving permits below.
